as a lot of power individual stories both of the general's we have all heard of from general marshall to general westmoreland but also those we haven't heard of and historians i think need to be recaptured. i'd like to go ahead and start right in in the middle if you will, tom. let's talk a little bit about your most provocative pieces, which is that oil down to in essence there's just not in a firing going on in the u.s. military since the end of world war ii. >> i will tze yes, there are is not enough firing going on but the book is not simply for firing more general's. it is a brief for accountability. if you hold people accountable for success and failure, you incentivize success in the military and i think we have lost that. there's a real tolerance for media be. as colonel paul yang ling famously said about the iraq war, a private uses his rifle -- [inaudible] and the book is a cry for restoring some of that accountability the george marshall used in world war ii that marshall gave generals about 90 days to two months to either succeed, get killed or be replaced. and that is why
imagine marshall saying to eisenhower january 44, a company that 18 months, time for some else to have a term. marshall and eisenhower made a lot of decisions in 42. they need to make mistakes and learn from them. eisenhower at one point in africa thought he might be relieved. he sent a letter to his son single, that's the nature of the business, don't worry about it. we will all go on. >> that's one of the critiques i've seen about your prescription to the book is a question of if rix wants us to fire more generals does that mean doesn't tolerate mistakes? by turner to suggest even our greatest leaders made plenty of mistakes on the personal front as well as -- >> you had 155 men elected to be division commanders in combat in the army in world war ii. many hurdles before that. marshall cleaned up 600 senior officers before the war began. officers he considered dead weight. that's the phrase used to frankfurter when frankfurter was talking to him. of the 155 men who commanded divisions in combat in the army in world war ii, 15 were fired. sorry, 16 were fired. of the 16, five were give

the first place. >> we do talk about this doctor marshall. integrating this into the public school curriculum, prevention, what is appropriate behavior, junior high dating, what are the boundaries for young women to set. behavioral models for young men. one thing i wanted to do more about is economic empowerment for women. as you can realize, the department has a small staff. at one time there were as many as 8-10 staff members. now we have 4.5 we sort of move our agenda as is necessary. the prevention -- intervention particularly -- is important to us particularly empowering women. it is even more difficult when there are financial issues and be able to be gainfully employed. >> this is not a criticism. i don't think - ideal of the same thing with the kids - i am saying, any opportunity that you hear about things progressing? when i talk to kids in school, is it really working? i want to leave it for me since i've had some success with young people i would be willing to offer to help in that area because like i said i don't like the in result. that so they want to stop. >>
you're doing and work with us and don't lose that concern for the community. dr. marshall. >> well, let me begin by saying i'm not a fan of drug users at all, at all, at all, and i don't think anybody who knows me knows that. a lot of pain, a lot of heartache and i really don't take any excuse. with that being said this report seems to say -- the questions being raised that there were more arrests of african-americans for drug sales as compared to other jurisdictions. it's a legitimate question to ask why. i think the next step -- it's a little clouded to me by the data collection thing anyway because it seems like we have data issues we have been wrestling with. with that notwithstanding the immediate thing to do see if the same disparities still exist. i think that would certainly be the next step, and then you could -- well, yeah. i think that's the main thing. if you get the numbers for the last four years would they be in fact similar or the same? i'm very familiar with michelle alexander and the book and i don't know there is not a tenderloin in every city and probably

>> >> if anybody has a right to ask a question, that's dr. joe marshall. i am very dedicated and certainly this commission is very dedicated to doing the prevention work and we do need to have a broader conversation about that. i think that as we started out with the discussion, executive director dr. -- indicated that this year so far we have had 0, we have so many days left in this calendar year, talking calendar year not fiscal year. we have had zero homicides as a result of domestic violence. that is really something to take note of. i don't think that that has occurred by happenstance; it is not a statistical anomaly. i think it is because we are gearing our work more as preventative. preventative - the collaborative effort that we are working with, the various departments, the police department, the various partner agencies is in and of itself becoming more defined preventative. a lot we heard this evening is interventive; as we go forward the fruits of that labor become more definitively preventative. nonetheless i think that you are absolutely correc

you very much. >> president mazzucco: dr. marshall. >> vice president marshall: obviously echoing everybody else, i mean let me just say the thing that bothers me i hear from people about the police, the police. there are individual officers who make up the department. and you know, there are times when some of them, for whatever reasons, do different things. but when you do good things, you've go the to be lauded, you've got to be showcased, you've got to let folks know this image that you have -- that's why we do this. this is the highest honor you can do. you save somebody's life and you have to let folks know. especially in that community, this is wonderful. thank you, thank you. everybody out there that's not the police, don't lump them all in the same category. thank you. >> president mazzucco: thank you, dr. marshall. anything further? chief. >> i just want to say first of all that i know, on behalf of the chief and the entire command staff we are so proud of both of you. i personally am very proud. i served five years in the bayview. i'm always proud to say i'm a pore tero
, and the organizational aspects by the respective staff. >> vice president marshall: i like when the commission joins meetings, some more than others. there is more of a nexus. we should do it again. much sooner than never. and that we stay on top of this. there are times when just because things happen, there is a focus on it. partly what is happening the city and elsewhere, it will stay on this, reconvene, we can really do something about not only domestic violence but the triage that we have been talking about. a bit strong support that and i know my fellow commissioners would also. >> is there anything further? we would like to adjourn in honor of -- >> i defer to commissioner -- >> if you allow me a personal moment to adjourn in memory of my mother-in-law. is rather appropriate because she was the mother of the san francisco police officer. she immigrated to this country, strong armenian woman, and had to go back to school to be reregistered as a nurse. she went back to state college later in life and completed courses where she received a teaching certificate to teach preschool at we

marshall fellow. honorable davis chiu. [applause] >> good morning. it is a real pleasure for me to be here for a number of reasons. first of all, a couple of years ago i was honored to be part of a group of american policy folks that was invited under the german marshall foundation to go to europe and to meet with policymakers in brussels and other points in europe to share ideas that we had from the united states. and it was a remarkably fruitful exchange and i think many of us that went on that trip brought back ideas to the united states that we are trying to legislate here locally. i'm also excited to see all of you here in part because some of you know, i'm one member of the board that doesn't have a car, that rides my bicycle many days of the week -- [applause] >> and like all of you, i think we are remarkably excited about the fact that the bike plan is moving forward, the fact that today is the start of the trial on market street, the fact that we are really moving our city's biking agenda forward. and i think with those of our friends from europe, we all want to take this to the n
marshall and omega boys club. over 150 handguns, almost 150 rifles and shotguns, these are not what people keep saying aren't going to make a difference. this is absolutely making a difference. and i would say to the nra or anybody that says, hey, this isn't the problem, if it's not the problem, it will make a difference, it should make a difference banning them. let's err on the side of caution, keep the kids safe. thank you. >> let me also echo again my appreciation for commissioner dr. joe marshall because omega boys club has been a great partner. they are part of our effort to organize commutes, to intervene as early as we can, and i totally agree with the chief that these particular guns, if you look at them up front and close, you'll see they really shouldn't be in anybody's homes. they're designed to kill folks. many of them military style. i think to bring home the real story here is dr. andrei campbell of our san francisco general hospital, and also on staff at ucsf. he is at the forefront of world class trauma center that we have. and if you go day to day, and certainly with the

that was very impressive and then last thursday, myself, the chief, dr. marshall and commissioner kingsley attended a luncheon where the chief spoke for the saint thomas moore society. the chief spoke about gun violence and did an excellent job taking on members of the nra and quite frankly, several appellant court justices were impressed with the chief's knowledge of the law so he did a great job. dr. marshall and kingsley participated and i think that we had a lot of impact on the attorneys in that room. >> it was good. >> very good. >> that is my report. commissioners? >> loftus? >> quickly i wanted to say that one of the things that we get to do on the police commission is i think attending this graduation was the first time that i was there and i just want to say to the members of the public and i want to ask the chief if you could share with my fellow commissioners the speech that you gave, i feel that some that have been on the commission for a long time, the things that you care the most deeply about he cheerly does too and told the officers that is what they need to care about and
